M. 2553, the fortieth year of the Exodus from Egypt. From Shittim, where the israelites had been encamped for about two months (De 1.3), to the Jordan, was, according to Josephus, about sixty stadia; that is, between seven and eight English miles. * Ge 22:3 Ps 119:60 Jer 7:13; 25:3; 26:5 Mr 1:35 - Shittim * Jos 2:1 Nu 25:1 Mic 6:5 - Jordan Jordan, called by the Arabs El Sharia, takes its rise in Anti-Libanus, about twelve miles north of Caesarea Philippi, now Bannias; and, having run about twelve miles southward, it receives a considerable stream, which is now called the Moiet Hasbeia. About 15 miles farther, it forms the waters of Merom or Semechon, now Houle; and, after running about 28 miles more, it passes through the lake of Gennesaret, and these runs southward till it loses itself in the Dead Sea; its whole course being about 160 miles.

It has, however, two banks; the first, or inner one, is that of the river it its natural state, and the second, or outer one, about a furlong distant, is that of its overflowings, which it does when the summer's sun has melted the snow on mount Lebanon and Hermon, in the months of March and April. And this was the time which God chose that the Israelites should pass over it; that a miraculous interposition might be necessary; and that, by the miracle, they might be convinced of his omnipotence. * Jos 4:18 1Ch 12:15 Jer 12:5; 49:19 - all the time * Jos 5:10-12 Le 23:10-16 De 16:1-9 VERSE 16 - rose up * Jos 3:13 Ps 29:10; 77:19; 114:3 Mt 8:26,27; 14:24-33 - Zaretan * 1Ki 4:12 - Zartanah * 1Ki 7:46 - Zarthan - the Salt Sea * Jos 15:2 Ge 14:3 Nu 34:3 De 3:17 - The passage through the Red Sea took place in the night, when the Israelites were fleeing from the Egyptians with great trepidation: but they passed Jordan in the day-time, with previous warning, leisurely, directly opposite to Jericho, and with a triumphant defiance of the Canaanites; this passage into the promised land evidently typifying the believer's passage through death to heaven.
